Album Notes
Recorded at the tail end of the Bandits' Holy Matrimony Tour '06, this live blast from the very near past captures the essence of The Randy Bandits at play in the fields of the pagan gods. In the back room of a tiki-torch-themed dive bar called Otto's Shrunken Head (on 14th St NYC), Jim, Russ, Sunny, Chris, Spiff and Stephen laid their souls bare and nerves raw in service of swell but now-deceased band Swell Mob's Avian Bird Flu Benefit. While the Bandits also made a recording the next night at the slightly more prestigious Living Room and subsequently at the world famous Knitting Factory, this is the recording that nails the spirit of the Bandits and captures a transitional performance in Bandits history.

Listen closely for when bassist Chris Murphy's low E string breaks, forcing the impromptu performance of a capella Story of Your Life. Thrill to the 9 minute messy ecstasy of the infamous Sexual Postman, wallow in recently departed (to Nashville) Stephen's aching Just a Man (prominantly featured on the studio album REDBEARD), enjoy live staples like Show Me with full Spanish band introduction and Talkin' to Randy, not to mention newer songs we'll surely be taking to the studio soon heard here in their live glory. And many other numbers...

If you have loved the Bandits for years, saw them once or are just stumbling onto them, enjoy them here as raw and honest as any music has ever been.
